Children’s myopia, parents should get out of these four misunderstandings

Abstract: many children with myopia immediately wear glasses through computer optometry. Although this method enables children to use the fastest speed and reach the normal level through correction, there are certain hidden dangers for eye protection.

now more and more teenagers suffer from myopia. Visual health has become an urgent social problem to be solved. Children wear thick glasses at a young age, which makes many parents worried. Because they don’t know much about vision correction, many parents are easy to get into some misunderstandings when helping their children correct their vision.

misunderstanding 1

direct glasses after computer optometry

many children with myopia immediately wear glasses through computer optometry. Although this method enables children to use the fastest speed and reach the normal level through correction, there are certain hidden dangers for eye protection. When it is determined that children have myopia, they should not only have optometry and glasses, but also do corresponding eye tests. Especially those who have optometry and glasses for the first time must go to the ophthalmology of formal medical institutions for eye examination to eliminate the blurred vision caused by other abnormalities and the hidden dangers caused by other eye diseases.

in addition, simple computer optometry can only be used as a reference for matching glasses. Glasses belong to medical supplies. Medical optometry should be carried out for matching glasses in order to achieve good correction effect and wearing experience.

misunderstanding 2

false myopia is mistaken for true myopia

many children are often in the stage of false myopia in the early stage of myopia. There is no need for corrective glasses at this stage. If the child is found to have myopia symptoms, he should go to the hospital for mydriasis optometry in time. Before mydriasis, the child has poor vision and myopia. After mydriasis, the child’s vision improves and returns to normal, which can be determined as pseudomyopia.

if the child is pseudomyopia, parents should urge the child to pay attention to eye hygiene, control the time of eye use, rest for 10 minutes every 40 minutes, carry out more outdoor sports and overlooking, and use eye drops appropriately according to the doctor’s advice.

are still young and do not need treatment.

strabismus and amblyopia are one of the common eye diseases of teenagers, which have a great impact on the visual development and visual function establishment of teenagers and children. Many children’s myopia is caused by strabismus and amblyopia. Many parents believe that their children are too young and don’t care about their appearance. They can wait a little older for treatment.

the most important treatment of strabismus and amblyopia is timely. Children are generally 6-8 years old, binocular vision is completely established, and the treatment of strabismus before this time period can achieve better treatment results and restore stereoscopic vision. The treatment of amblyopia is the sooner the better.

wearing glasses will deepen the degree of myopia.

many parents have a doubt that children’s myopia is still deepening with glasses. Is this caused by glasses?

and

on the contrary, in the case of not wearing glasses, if myopia wants to see distant objects, it must squint, which will cause excessive fatigue of muscles inside and outside the eyes and accelerate the development of myopia. Therefore, wearing glasses is to see the distance and avoid excessive eye fatigue, which will not lead to the deepening of myopia.

people’s eyes and body have a process of growth and development. Teenagers are in the period of physical development. With the growth of the body, the ocular axis will naturally increase, which will inevitably lead to a certain increase in the degree of myopia.

it is very important to protect eyesight and develop good living habits.

for the myopia control of teenagers, scientific fitting of glasses is important, but the key is to develop good eye habits.

don’t lie or lie down when reading. Pay attention to the light is not too weak or too strong. Pay attention to eye hygiene. Do not read and write close for a long time. The reading and writing time should be controlled at 40-50 minutes each time. If you watch TV or operate your mobile phone or computer for more than 30 minutes, you should rest your eyes, close your eyes and refresh yourself or look into the distance.

and

outdoor sports are also widely recognized as an effective means to prevent myopia. Outdoor sports can not only let children get rid of the temptation of electronic products and reduce close eye use, but also have sufficient space to overlook, relax their eyes and exercise.
